Clarion teams with Shawn Hawley to sponsor Drift Car

Clarion teams up with Shawn Hawley to Sponsor Drift Car

Shawn Hawley of Edmonton, AB has made his presence felt in the Castrol Drift Mania Canadian Championship (DMCC) over the past few years in his 1992 Toyota Chaser. Having entered the drift scene in 2005, Shawn has made his way up through the ranks, earning the 2009 Rookie of the Year award and being invited to drive in the 2010 Edmonton Indy Drift Demo.

For 2011, Clarion Canada Inc. has partnered with Shawn and the ShawleyDrift team to promote the Clarion brand at each event he attends. Shawn created new silver and blue graphics for the Chaser and it proudly wears the Clarion and Certified Radio logos down each side.

Powering the mighty Chaser is a 420whp 1JZ-GTE motor, fed by an HKS 3037S turbo. Power is sent rearwards through a Clutchmaster clutch and put to the ground thanks to tires from fellow sponsor Wheels-Plus.

In the opening event of the Western Canadian DMCC series, Shawn made it into the Great 8 round, proving he’s got some talent in this difficult sport. The next event is July 31, 2011 at the Stratotech Sphere in Fort Saskatchewan, AB. If you can, be sure and check it out!
